Plan Ancianos in Guatemala

We were kept ocupied over Christmas helping the families prepare for the New Year in both Santa María and Itzapa. Plan Ancianos, available to the older generation of the kids that attend our schools, was first.

As well as the usual sugar, mosh, atol, rice, pastas, beans and soup, we gave out four Pacaya plants - a fruit plant that will provide the older people with vital nutrition once it is ready in four or five years.

As it was Christmas we kicked off the event with a pinatta which the old ladies loved!!! It bought Christmas in with a lot of laughter and fun!
